Repairing small delamination spot

I have a couple of delaminated spots on the 89 Winnebago Chieftain,
Can anyone share a link, or give a little advice on repairing it. short of replacing the side panels, I am thinking cut out the delam, clean it up, and fiberglassing over it.
Coach needs paint, so I am not worried about messing up the paint.

Since you're not worried about the paint and you know where the delam is, here what I would do. Drill a 1/4" hole or the size of the syringe tip near the top of the delam just through the fiberglass and make sure the wood inside is DRY, then shoot some air (low pressure)in the hole and you can see how much area the delam is and you can tell if its behind the fiberglass or the wood. Then with the delam kit fletch460 suggested shoot the epoxy in the delam follow by low pressure air. Use blue painter tape to cover the hole when filled, but has to be dry. After everything is taped up get a small block of wood wrap with cloth and start slapping the delam area. Next 3/4" plywood and wood brace using your car jack, hopefully you have the scissor type jacks. oh and don't forget the wax behind the plywood. After everything is brace tight get a good size hammer and do several good wacks on the plywood where the delam is. Hopefully you put enough epoxy in the delam so when you remove the tape the hole is also filled. Make sure you have acetone to clean up epoxy spills on your finish.
